Why We Are Here
The aim of the Huon Small Farms Expo is to give people the tools and knowledge they need to succeed at getting the most out of their farm. It doesn’t matter if you just want a vegetable patch or want to launch a gourmet produce business the Huon Small Farms Expo is here for you. Our area of Tasmania is nationally iconic for great food, great produce, and innovative new ideas, and we want to foster that legacy into the future. The event is run by volunteers and provided free to the public for the purpose of bettering the whole Huon Valley and beyond.
